Getting compensation after a hit and run

by | Apr 8, 2015 | Hit And Run Accidents

If there is one thing worse than a car accident that isn’t your fault, it’s a hit and run accident that isn’t your fault. You may be injured, your passengers could be hurt, and your car may be a mangled mess. Seeing the other driver speed off to avoid charges just makes the whole thing devastating.

However, the authorities are still going to search for that driver, and they have many ways to track them down. One of the easiest is simply taking the description of the vehicle to the auto body shops in the area. If your car is damaged, the hit and run driver’s car is probably going to need some serious work as well. After the police catch that driver, it’s important for you to know what legal action you can take.

For one thing, a hit and run is a crime, so the driver could face criminal charges. However, it also goes beyond that. Regardless of the way that the criminal trial turns out, you may want to look into compensation for your injuries and the damage to your vehicle. You may also be able to get compensation for the passengers in your car, especially if they were your children and you had to pay medical bills on their behalf.

Make sure that you do all that is in your power to get what you deserve after you are subjected to a hit and run accident. If you want to learn more about the different legal options that you have in Wisconsin, take a look at our page today, as it offers a lot of information and assistance.
